"We are looking forward to hosting this meet again," says Men's Interim Head Coach Jordan Carpenter. "We've hosted this meet for a few years now, and our NCAA Regionals meet was also run on this course in 2009, 2011, 2013, and 2015, and will be again this fall 2017. It's a proven course that is challenging and exciting."
Women's Interim Head Coach Emma de Lira is likewise enthused: "This is a tough cross country course that has all the elements to challenge a runner. It has grass and dirt trails, and the whole course pretty much goes either uphill or downhill. So on each loop you have to do a bit of work to set up the next loop. The course is also very spectator-friendly; you can see the runners go by numerous times from the central start/finish area at the track."
Maya Weigel (Pomona-Pitzer) holds the women's meet record of 20:57.3 set in winning the 2016 Invite. The men's record is 24:31.7 by Danny Lyon (CSU San Marcos) in winning the 2012 Invite.
